DC Kids - Website
Strategy, Digital Content, Mobile App
In order to create a site that would engage and build a mobile web audience for DC, we looked to incorporate opportunities for exploration and play into the core of the design. We call this ‘multi-dimensional’ design, where visitors are rewarded for their curiosity by following their own path through the site, clicking deeper and uncovering pieces of content in their own way.
The site features bios, video clips, games and comics featuring all the classic characters, from The Flash to Superman to Wonder Woman. The easy to explore digital environment offers immersive entertainment for kids through components such as videos, downloadable activities, games, quizzes and contests. Original digital shorts from Batman Unlimited and DC Super Friends have been featured on the site as well.
Created as a rich and responsive HTML5 experience, the site is optimized for today’s Generation Z digital natives browsing on mobile devices.
